Elect Robyn Denson
Pierce County Council
I have over 20 years of experience in non-profit program development and have worked hard to support a number of amazing community organizations including Habitat for Humanity and the March of Dimes.
I’ve also served organizations that have been focused on economic development, job training and education (Economic Development Corporations and Community Action Agencies).
I served the State of Washington for five legislative sessions as a non-partisan policy research analyst for the State House of Representative’s Office of Program Research.
I supported all members of the House of Representative and in this role I researched, wrote and analyzed legislation for our elected leaders. Critical thinking, with much thought towards consequences, and particularly “unintended consequences”, was a huge part of this job. Legislative, critical thinking and negotiation skills learned during my time at the House will be of use to our community.
In 2009 I accepted an Ian Axford Public Policy Fellowship in New Zealand where I researched and reported upon ways to help Kiwi's get "sorted" financially!
I was a Nationally Registered EMT for 4 years which explains my huge support of our first responder community!
I am a small-business owner.
I am a real estate broker specializing in residential transactions, particularly focused on helping folks find housing that meets their budgets and lifestyles. From the very start of my business, following each transaction, I donate $500 to the charity of my client’s choice (baring any unusual circumstances…sometimes my clients need the help themselves). After all of my work asking for money in the non-profit sector, I know how tough it is for non-profit organizations to raise the money they need to operate, particularly given how many great and worthy causes there are in our community.
